NASA reveals a new image of a dwarf planet "as nothing humanity has ever seen"
NASA unveiled a new image of the planet Dwarf Ceres, which "is like nothing humanity has ever seen before." miles. It also contains the largest mountain of the largest known asteroid in the solar system, Akuna Mons, which rises to more than 13,000 feet. It is unclear what exactly caused the formation of Akuna Mons, whose slopes are decorated with vertical stripes, but the space agency has a new theory. "The new hypothesis, based on numerous gravitational measurements, claims that a mud balloon rises from deep within the dwarf planet and pushes through the icy surface into a weak point rich in reflective salt – and then froze," NASA said in a statement. “/>

By comparison, the largest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest, rises to 29,029 feet. The interior of the Ceres is not rigid and rigid but moves and at least partially liquid, "said Vladimir Neumann of the DLR Planetary Research Institute at Berlin-Adlersof and the University of Münster. "This" balloon "that forms in the mantle of the Ceres under Ahuana Mons is a mixture of salt water and rock components."
The study was published in the journal Nature Geoscience.
This is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and was first seen by Giuseppe Piaci in 1
801. In 2015 it was the first dwarf planet , which is visited by NASA
Visualization is based on data from Dawn, which is still circling Ceres but has run out of fuel and is actually dead.
A previous version of this story said Akuna M is the largest mountain off Earth. This is the largest mountain of a famous asteroid. Fox News regrets this mistake.
